Question on pokie housing

    We have an ornata and metallica. I asked the question the other day in regard to final housing for them and got some great advice. Well here goes with my next questions. My pokies are currently in 32oz. deli cups. We just got a 5 week delay on getting our condo due to some repairs that need to be made to it. We move in Oct. 13th.

    1. Will my ornata and metallica be okay in the deli cups till we move? The pokies are 3½-4 inches.
    2. Will I need to do anything special or rehouse before the move?

    Thank you for any advice you can offer. It will be thoroughly appreciated.

    Will they be due for molts before the move?
    Honestly, I'm not sure what moving has to do with whether or not you rehouse them? But if you are able to upgrade them now, I would. They won't die in the delis, but it will be cramped.

    Kinda cramped imo, but i always like to size up for pokies.
    Walmart has some cheap sterilite tubs, like 2.5 qt or so,about 8 bucks for a pack of 6, taller than wide.
    I use them for temporary housing for pokie juvies and small adults.

    That's too small for a fast genus, esp arboreals.
